41st Anniversary Summer Musical
at The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts


 By Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

July 20 – July 30, 2023

What’s the buzz? The first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for 50 years. The rock opera follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life through the eyes of Judas. Loosely based on the four Gospels, the story is told entirely via some of the most famous songs in theatre history, such as “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, “Superstar” and “Heaven On Their Minds”.
